The bike in your pictures does appear to have a derailleur hanger. Since it is a mountain bike, looks like a seven speed cassette, and probably has shimano shifters something like this Shimano Alivio:

Would be a reasonable replacement.

The only caveat is that since your derailleur twisted and bent it could have also bent the hanger. You can check it by eye, but it may be a good idea to take it to a bike shop and have them check it with a tool like this:
